    Correct as per Ferret, If you've taken this out of a working 328i then it's already coded for use (doesn't need to be paired to a particular vehicle).
    If it's not working then I would check all the cable/wires and the actuator again as it should be working.... coding is only necessary if you have an uncoded/new module.

    Hmm... the only thing you might want to check is the actuator cable length and adjust as necessary so it functions correctly - if it's loose then it won't work

    This is the thing, I set up the actuator cable so it's all the correct length with no slack but not putting constant strain on etc
    When you plug the diagnostics in, it finds the module and gets the readings from all the functions of the stalk and the clutch/brake pedal switches but I just can't make it 'engage' when I'm driving along.

    When your testing the cruise control, you are above 30Mph ?
    As I believe it won't engage below 30 !

    Yup, always above 30.

    Best to double check the wiring then.

    You say that diagnostics can see everything, so most of it must be wired up correctly, but something like the speed sensing wire might not be correct.

    Yeah that's what we're thinking, but it's spliced into the same speed sensor wire that we added for the OBC, which works fine.
    Tis very confusing considering how the diagnostics seems to give the all clear, but will have to check over everything again.

    Update:
    We'd mixed up two wires .
    Checked the wiring from the actuator to the module plug and we'd mixed up two wires that were the same colour. Swapped them round and bingo, I have cruise

    Hey guys. When people say that you need to make up 2 looms, what exactly do they mean by that? I should hasten to add that I a bit of a noobie to retrofitting but I've managed a couple of the more tricky ones recently!
